of governors like tie, allcuomo, and chrsite are calling us to focus on infrastructure not only needed in a devastated northeast but to understand the importance of infrastructure investment. clearly, people need to go back to work. that is something positive that we all agree on that can be done and should be done but as we noticed today, there are no votes on the united states congress and the house of representatives today. we also agree, and emphasize this again, as did gene sperling -- everyone, and we mean everyone, should get $250,000 ineveryone -- and so that means that even billionaires get that first $250,000. and everyone is in agreement -- the republicans do not want to see the middle class go without this tax cut. so where we disagree, let us push that off. where we agree, let's embrace. further, we discussed again the long term effects of our deficit, which are directly tied to health care -- the work that has been done in the congress as it relates to constructing and exchange that will take place in 2014 and go into effect, and the tools that we provided a initially on
ahead of us. they're right here. and we have to sit down and go to work on it now, not wait. this was the message the american people sent from all over and that is they're tired of these partisan gridlocks. they're tired of things like i have one goal, to defeat obama. that is gone. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. the american people want us to work together. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to balance the -- a balanced approach to everything. especially with the huge deficit and taxes are part of that. i can remember my first president after i had been selected as the democratic leader. i was so afraid, i really was. and as i do on occasion, off the cuff, i said i know how to fight. i know how to dance. i do not dance as well as i fight but i would much rather dense hair -- any time and i still feel that way. it is better to dance than to fight. it is better to work together ho. everything does not have to be a fight. that is how it has been the last couple of years. everyone should comprehend especially my senate frie
rounds on capitol hill. this is ten minutes. >> good morning, everyone. the president has warned us about the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff. but his actions have not matched his public statements. members of his own party seem quite comfortable with sending the economy over the fiscal cliff. on tuesday, we had productive conversation at the white house. despite the claims that the president supports a balanced approach, the democrats have yet to get serious about real spending cuts. secondly, no substantive progress has been made in the talks between the white house and the house over the last two weeks. this is not a game. jobs are on the line. the american economy is on the line. this is a moment for adult leadership. campaign-style rallies are not the way to get things done in washington. a discussion with the treasury secretary was frank and direct. we hope to see a specific plan for cutting spending. we sought to find out what the president is willing to do. i remain hopeful that productive conversations can be had in the days ahead. but the white house has to get serious. y
, it's created crime in this country that is using up resources both to lock people up and to chase people down. so 17 states have medical marijuana. should the federal government classify marion as a schedule one drug which makes it worse than cocaine or hoirn. >> no i haven't been but i did live for a while in central america and i had some friends who worked for drug interdiction for the united states government. i asked them sit true that about 2.7 sents out of ever dollar on drug interdiction does the job. they said yes that's right. if you're in the drug biz or thinking about going into the drug business, think about this for a minute. >> well if i go into the drug business, i have a 97% chance of success. if you compare that to the chance of failure if you do a legitimate start up anywhere in the world. what you have to asay to yourself is if you have a 97% chance of going into the drug business then why not, let's go do it. 97% of all the money we spend on drug interdiction is going down the rat hole. if we made it legal, we would as you pointed out the drug cartels we would
around the world. and you saw him during the 2012 u.s. campaign. he was campaign manager for the landslide reelection of california governor in 2006. before that a top political advice sor in the white house of george w. bush. he attended the university of delaware from 1988 to 1993. david plouffe crossed paths in schmidt in the late 1980's. he completed his political seasons degree and finned two years ago. he has completed two presidential bids. he was appointed as a senior advice sor to the president in the white house in 2011. he attended is the marks high school before serving in a wide viret of state and national political campaigns. i'm going to ask the two speakers this evening to speak and i had to decide who is going to go first and i decided to use a standard that anyone this this audience could mean and that is whoever has won the most recent presidential election gets to speak first. i think that's the fair enough thing to do so please welcome david plouffe and steve schmidt to the university of delaware. [applause] >> thank you for joining thus evening. it's
himself into an innovative program at walter reed, where they ended up using acupuncture, medication, and other techniques to wean him of all the drugs he was on, and for this program he actually was able to walk out of walter reed on his own 2 feet. i really commend the military for allowing us to tell the story, both the good and the bad, but for recognizing the problem, that there is the problem of over medication, and that they are looking for outside the box ideas on how to fix it. that is sort of the whole basis of the film, the status quo is not working and we need to start looking for outside the box ideas. >> sunday night at 8:00 on "q&a". >> now, president obama's senior campaign staff on tuesday's election results. he spoke with reporters during a half hour conference call looking at a voter turnout, the role of outside money, and at the state of the republican party. >> thanks, everybody, for joining the call today. we have heard from many of you individually. we thought it might be easiest to just do this:what are some things together. it has been roughly 36 hours since
and use the political process to do that. we wish them sleep and some time with family. i want to congratulate all the volunteers for what they did on election day. we had over 109,000 people canvassing on doors, double that on the phones, and they executed a historic ground game. the reason they were motivated to do this it was not because of any analytical tools or tech product that we gave them. they were working to build this campaign because they believe in barack obama and his message and the policy he moved forward -- to move this country forward. that is what won in this election. across battleground states, we are currently sitting at 50.4. i think we will get a little better than president bush's margin in the 2004 election. our margin over republicans declined about 3.7% compared to 2008. 5.3 in non battleground states. millions of ballots are still being counted, 4 million in california alone. sometime today we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, no
, it is the opposite. they are saying, we have nominated two moderates in a row. look where it has gotten us, no where. i think it will start to see people like rand paul. and certainly, bobby jindal from louisiana. they will make a trip or two and test the waters. this new class, how are they going to react to being led? are they going to be able to be led? >> i think no one knows. that is kind of the point. in comparison to the enormous freshman class that we just had and everyone makes so much noise about, it is really instructive. considering the number of open seats that were left open for retirement and redistricting and so on and so forth, incumbents who lost, there will be more members of the house with fewer than two terms of experience in the 113th congress than any time in the last two decades in 1992 with redistricting and the banking scandal. no one really knows. you have seen vader and cantor and other republican leaders fanned out across the country in the last few months. and even campaigning for incoming members who were in cakewalks in north carolina and california and other parts of
. you would have been a great president. i am sorry you did not win." share your comments with us. republicans keep the u.s. house, and democrats increase the majority in the u.s. senate. >> i am a little but a horse, so bear with me. i am very happy tonight for america and the rest of the world. i am a retired marine master surgeon, having retired in 1980. the divisiveness in this country -- you notice the democratic party and its audience, it is always a big picture of what america is all about. when you look at the republicans, it is a one-way street. besides being a former recruiter for the marine corps, and having had the opportunity of enlisting marine recruits to send them to be a non and see them back in body bags as the result of -- send them to the vietnam, and see them back in body bags -- that is neither here nor there. we had a candidate who was lying in his candidacy, in the beginning, middle, and end. i hope he can take newt gingrich and the rest of those people along with him, and find a deep hole and bury themselves. thank you very much. >> carol is joining us fro
